Daiki Ueno created an issue: https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/-/issues/1349

The library limits the length of PKCS#12 password to be less than [256](https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/-/blob/9860846b66e4c698c60a3b343dcb3ba49c77e096/lib/x509/pkcs12_encr.c#L30) bytes. Since passwords get encoded in UCS2, the limit for ASCII passwords is halved to 128 characters, which is not uncommon to exceed these days.

Let's increase the limit to, say 4096 characters (8192 bytes).
